Students Learn about the Cost of Living

Mortgage, rent, gas, water, electric, phone, council tax....... bills bills bills! The list goes on. 

Year 10 students have been gaining valuable insight into the cost of living once you leave school and home and enter into the big wide world. With advice and guidance from the Next Steps Southwest Team, students were left surprised when they learnt just how expensive life can be and the importance of being in a well paid job at the end of their education.

With the average salary in the UK now at £27,000 students recognise that by working hard and getting good results they are more likely to earn better money and have better lifestyles. s a result of the workshops students have given more thought to the jobs that they are considering for their future career.
